FOUND by Pam on Turk Street, San Francisco, California
I found this kind note this morning on my regular dog walking route; ten feet away from a raccoon that had been “sleeping” next to the curb for about three days. It’s kind of heartbreaking to think of this person first noticing the raccoon, then taking the time to write the note and, I assume, very quietly place the note under the wiper so as not to wake the tired beast.
Someone taped this to the wall of my laundry room. This dingy laundry room serves around 100 units and I find it kind of funny that these people were surprised that their unattended belongings would be taken. This is a big city and its every man for himself.
I rented a backpack in Australia and found one of these notes inside. Then, I found another note to and from the same two people (Alyssa and Jenna) at a hostel nearby where I rented the backpack. Small world!
Found on the street outside a friend’s flat in San Francisco where parking is at a premium. Love the sweet balance of good-naturedness and bile. Good reminder that sometimes consideration and a sense of community can be hard to come by in a city where it is surely the most needed.
